Stayed for 3 nights in October for my partners 40th Birthday. From the check-in to check-out we couldnt fault the staff or the hotel. Check in was smooth and swift. We were assisted to the room with our bags and the car was valet parked for a resonable price. The room (Langley Suite) was great. I dont think its possible to get a room closer to the Minster. Amazing views of the Minster from the 2 large windows and even from the bathroom! The bathroom was very nice with a decent shower and bath. Plenty of nice touches in the room. From the free minibar (softdrinks), coffee machine and L'Occitane toiletries. These touches really helped make it feel like a nice hotel. The breakfast was very nice. No buffet due to Covid but a very good menu and you could have as much as you like. The attentive staff were always willing to bring more coffee, juice or anything else needed. The tables were well spaced. Would definitley stay here again without as doubt. Massive thanks to all the staff for making it a weekend to remember.

Dear CastleA Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your stay at the Dean Court Hotel celebrating your partners 40th birthday. The Langley Suite in which you stayed is often regarded as the best room in the hotel and with the addition of complimentary mini bar items, Nespresso machines and additional luxury toiletries as well as that enviable view it is no surprise that this is sometimes the case. Reading over your review, it certainly seems that we contributed to a great stay in York and we at the hotel hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Kind regards Steve Bailey

Hotel's Favorite
Just back from a one night stay at this fantastic hotel, lovely check in & shown around the hotel & to our room by the lovely Frank who explained all the new Covid regulations. Frank never stops & nothing was too much trouble, he’s such a great credit to the hotel. Our room was lovely with a partial view of the Minster. We used the valet parking ( thanks again Frank) great service & worth the cost to be able to park & forget about the car, the hotel is in a great location for shops, bars, restaurants & all the main attractions that York has to offer. We enjoyed a lovely few hours in the bar looked after by Alison who was great company . We enjoyed sandwiches on room service & breakfast was also lovely. Will definitely return for a longer stay.

We spent a couple of nights here and it was wonderful. Perfectly located for all the must do things in York. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Rooms are comfortable with very good beds - one of the best I’ve ever slept in (and I’m hard to please on that front). Good WiFi and TV (something not many hotels get right). Seriously close to everything without being intrusive. Next door to the minster! We’ll certainly be back. Thank you.

We chose to stay at this hotel because it had parking, valet parking even which was a bonus and because it was close to York City centre. They took many COVID-19 safety precautions like one way systems, hand gels around the hotel, plastic screens, face masks, health questionnaire and even a heat temperature reading. Our check in and check out were very easy and straight forward. As mentioned they had valet parking and nice to have. Our receptionist gave us a guide to York as well, which was a nice touch. Our room was small but practical for 2 people, good size and comfortable bed, en suite bathroom with a shower, tea making facilities, TV, free WiFi and a great view of York Minster outside our window. They offered room service too and were very attentive with that. We didn't get to try out their restaurant as had pre booked places, but might try next time. All in all, we throughly enjoyed our stay here and will do so again.

As regular visitors to York we haven’t found a bad accommodation yet but may just have found the best we’ve used. Dean Court is located literally over the road from York Minster and we were delighted to be upgraded to a room with a view of this magnificent building. Location wise this hotel is perfect, 10 minutes walk into the centre of York with a good selection of bars and restaurants within a view of the hotel. We requested an early check in (1100) and this was accommodated no problem. The room, a deluxe queen, was very clean and comfortable with a huge comfy bed and a good selection of pillows available. Covid measures in the hotel were second to none and we felt very safe and secure with the precautions taken. The restaurant is only serving breakfast but this was excellent, plentiful, tasty and freshly prepared. All staff we encountered from reception to the restaurant staff at breakfast were friendly, courteous and professional. All in all a great short break and we already look forward to our next visit, hopefully when normality is returning to the world. Thank you to all at Dean Court and best of luck to you during and following lockdown.
